Generous banana custard body cream. Eleven years old and still as popular as ever, Sympathy for the Skin is probably the only banana body cream in the universe, and almost definitely the only one with real, organic mashed bananas in it. The name comes from The Rolling Stones' track 'Sympathy for the Devil.'
We use real bananas to make skin softer, even if they're a bit of a menace to mash. Helen had wanted to use bananas in a cream for a long time, because of their moisturizing properties, and Sympathy was the perfect solution. Smooth our nutritious cream all over your body and go absolutely bananas.
I am obsessed with this stuff, the smell is something else and it makes my skin softer than a babies bum. I wish it was cheaper but I guess you get what you pay for and this is worth the value. I suffer from dry skin and eczema outbreaks and this really helped keep my skin moisturised and happy.
I wish I could find my pictures, but this lotion makes my tattoos go CRAZYBRIGHT! I love it, the banana makes the colors pop even more throughout the day. Not to mention that, but it smells great and it's not stinky on your hands or oily. It's the perfect body moisturizer.
Unfortunately I must be allergic to some ingredient in this, because it made my skin super itchy. :( I don't know exactly what ingredient it is, though.
Overall this was a nice lotion so I'm kinda bummed about the reaction my skin had to it. Smells decent, good consistency, and left a slightly greasy finish but that absorbed fairly quickly.
